    Gail Doyle's Note:

    This makes great rolls and scones!!! I lost this recipe for over a year and could not find one that was as light. Now that it is on the web I won't ever loose it again!! It was a bread recipe from the back of a wheat bag but I use it for rolls. Can grease 2 1/2 size cans and use as pans. Fill cans 1/2 full.

      I was excited to find this recipe as I love making yeast doughs with potatoes in them. It seems to add great flavor and moistness. Since the directions weren't terribly well written, I wondered if was merely an omission that the bread dough isn't given a first rise before shaping into loaves? Using these proportions, the dough is too soft to shape into loaves without a first rise. I would love to hear what anyone else who has tried the recipe did as far as rising?

      I made these rolls for Thanksgiving and we all liked them. I think I should have let them raise a little more as they were a tad dense, but with all the baking I was doing, my oven schedule was kind of tight. If you are looking for a 100% whole wheat roll recipe, they are definitely worth a try. Thanks for posting.

      Made whole wheat rolls with these and they had a nice flavor. This recipe isn't easy to follow. No mention of the salt or honey in the directions. I think this would be hard for a beginner bread maker to follow (like me!)
